Yeah- that'd be a good idea- maybe someone with CAD or Illustrator could do up an SVG?

Some years ago I've downloaded a (free) program that will PRINT almost ANY SHAPE using this tecnique, using your printer and a standard A4 paper to be fold and cut. Very very neat for unusual postards & letters! ciao! Mario

Presumably you could reverse fold all the creases when you're finished to make it pop out in the other direction.

If you reversed all the creases, wouldn't it just be a flat piece of paper again?
